Not really. I'm introducing a consideration that I feel should eliminate HIV+ personnel from combat or forward duty. There's LOTS of jobs needed where the likelihood of severe trauma and fluid exchange is minimal and risks to medical personnel is likewise minimal. Each combat person requires 20-25 other persons doing other jobs so the forward units can be there.<quoted text>
I am sympathetic to your argument. But I don't believe you addressed mine, which is based on statistical chance.
It seems to me you're playing the same game as those who have unprotected sex with partners they believe to be HIV- without knowing. They feel secure because they don't know. Is it possible that it's better to know that there are soldiers presenting a minimized level of risk, rather than to pretend that there aren't any soldiers presenting a very high level of risk?
I think that all military personnel should be tested regularly for HIV infection, and if found to be positive reassigned to rear duties.
